Commissioned in 1944, the U.S.S. Missouri was the third Iowa Class Battleship constructed. Known as the largest and most powerful ships ever utilized by the US Navy, only four were constructed which took part in the war. Her length gave her increased speed with a graceful clipper bow, flat deck and tower type superstructure. She was a design masterpiece for the Defense Department.

Mighty MO was mighty indeed. She traveled for combat carrying 10 twin 5" turrets for anti-aircraft defense and small targets, 20 quadruple 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft guns and 49 single 20mm anti-aircraft guns.

Power did not elude her either, she was packed with eight oil fired boilers in four fire rooms with a total of 212,000 shaft horsepower. This gave her a flank speed of 33 knots and a cruising radius of 15,900 n.m. at 17 knots.
